Just out of curiousity - which bag has been the most durable for you? I was dissappointed with my Sig Stripe tote because after only 3 months of me carrying it (almost every day, granted) it looked worn. I really don't carry it anymore because it just looks like it has seen better days. I had a Hamptons tote I used for school that fared better, but after a year it looked like it needed to be retired (I used it for another year anyway and now it's really beat!). I'm thinking about what bag to use this fall for school and I'm not sure what to get - initially I thought Carly, but I like the signature ones best and I'm afraid the fabric won't hold up well. I thought about getting a Hamptons book tote off of eBay too, I just don't know! I know I will be needing a new school bag (the only other bag I'm going to be getting this year) - should I go Coach or maybe just buy something at Eddie Bauer or Jansport and trash it?
